Car shipping in Illinois

Transporting your vehicle to or from Illinois

The Land of Lincoln. The Prairie State. Home of “Da Bears.” “The Windy City.” Illinois is known by many names. With forests, farmland, cityscapes and rolling hills, this Midwestern state has a lot to offer—urban or rural lifestyle, a range of major-league sports teams, a diverse history and plenty of opportunities to be active both outside or indoors.

Illinois is also a hub, smack dab in the middle of the country, where a variety of corporate headquarters are located, including Boeing, McDonald’s, United Airlines and Walgreens. For this reason, many job candidates around the country find themselves relocating to the state. Alternatively, you may be heading there for a permanent change of scenery or extended vacation.

What to consider when shipping a car in Illinois

Whatever brings you to Illinois, you’ll want your car, truck or other personal vehicle with you for your commute, for social events or just to explore the state. You can choose to drive the vehicle yourself, but if you’re moving, you’ll likely have a long list of other things to sort out. If you’re traveling to Illinois for vacation and want your car with you, you may need to spend multiple days driving it there.

Auto transport is a convenient service for getting your vehicle to its destination safely. Depending on your vehicle make and year, transport distance, time of year and specific locations, the cost of your particular shipment can range from several hundreds to several thousands of dollars. Find the best value by working with a professional transport company.

Choose the best Illinois auto transport company

Your car is not only a big investment, it’s also a possession that can bring comfort and convenience when traveling or moving somewhere new. With that in mind, you don’t want to trust just anyone to transport your vehicle. You’ll want a company that will treat it (and you!) with respect and provide the best service possible to avoid the car incurring any damage during transit.

"I shipped an old Jeep several states south of Illinois. The driver was extremely kind and very fast. He was able to pick the car up on a busy Chicago street and load it within 15 minutes. The delivery was completed in two days. I would highly recommend Montway and will use them for any auto shipping going forward."
